Thanks Darlene. This old saying points right at the heart of what's wrong
with curricula (not just any particular curriculum, but *curricula*
itself!): These schemes almost always concentrate effort on leading horses
to water, forgetting this bit of wisdom in our lore, forgetting that
thirst is the key! You can lead a horse to water, but *there's no point*
if it doesn't want to drink.
We not only lead our students to water whether they are thirsty or not,
but we then proceed to critique their drinking abilities, adding insult.
